Health Information Technology professionals are experts in managing and administering computerized patient health information systems and providing the diagnosis and procedure codes for healthcare services provided to patients.

These professionals work in a multitude of settings throughout the healthcare industry including hospitals, physician offices and clinics, long-term care facilities, insurance companies, government agencies and home care providers.

Employment of Health Information Technicians is expected to increase by 22% until 2022, faster than the average for all occupations, as the demand for health services increases due to the aging population.
